Write a 2.5-3-page persuasive essay.
For this final assessment, you will continue to apply the stages of writing by creating a rough draft of your persuasive essay. Part of this is to complete more research in the Capella library. As you move through your educational journey, you will find that many epiphanies occur when learning new ideas and concepts about areas you thought you understood. You begin to question preconceived ideas and develop new awareness. You will then revise and proofread this draft. As you finish the final draft of your persuasive paper, consider how you see your voice as the voice of a hero for your discipline.
Finally, the fifth and final stage of the Hero’s Journey is the figurative death (often literal in mythology). The day you chose your course of study, you began to think differently. You literally began to change and you experienced a figurative death as you imagined a new career. As you end this course, you will move on to new courses. Hopefully, you also see writing in a new light. If you already enjoyed writing, hopefully you learned new skills. If you did not enjoy writing, hopefully you see it at least in a new or more accessible light.
